scan showing that you will most of the area is dry this morning. some of your roads around philadelphia might be wet because of some recent showers but if we go in tighter we still have some decent downpours that are occurring on the new jersey turnpike and areas to the east of trenton looks like jackson mills is just on the outside of this and this is pushing off to the northeast so we don't expect it to be a problem much longer but if you're in medford lakes you're getting the tail end of that and some of our more heavily traveled roads and by ways may have a little bit more road on them this morning to start out. i'll leave you with that wide view because we're still looking at dry conditions pretty much elsewhere. little bit of light stuff out to the west of us not really sure that's going to be an issue. as we take a look outside, we have sky6 and there's the airport and there indeed is that wet road condition and wet air field surface that we talked about so a little bit of that to deal with this morning. your temperature is 62 degrees, fairly comfortable, dewpoints still in the upper 50's. winds are light out of the east at 3 miles per hour. and your ocean temperature is
66 degrees off atlantic city. getting a little bit milder. futurefuture tracker6 picking tt you current rain and scoot scooting it out of here. by 9 o'clock we expect to transition to a mix of clouds and sun, more clouds over by the coast. we see the return of more sunshine and we'll probably wind up partly sunny through the afternoon. i'll point out that every now and then the model does put a little blip of precipitation so we can't rule out a passing shower or thundershower this afternoon but as you can see right on up top 6 o'clock it's mainly dry, just something to kind of keep in the back of your mind. later on by 10:00 or 10:30 we're very likely clearing out. temperatures today are going to be on the warm side. 66 degrees by 8 o'clock. comfortable there. then by 10:00 a.m., 72 and by noon we'll be up to 76 degrees. your high today is 79 around 3 o'clock probably holding that through 4 o'clock. and humidity levels will still be on the low side so pretty comfortable once we get rid of this morning rain. 77 degrees is your 6 o'clock temperature. high temperatures across the region pretty similar. 76 up in allentown t-78 in
trenton, 77 in reading, 79 degrees in philadelphia and 80 down in dover. most of us though in the 70's today and then if you're down the shore it looks like upper 70's from the boardwalk in ac down the coast to cape may t tomorrow another gorgeous day. lots of sunshine, very much like yesterday. we'll get a high of 81 degrees t-high pressure in control. a summer beauty with very light winds, that high pressure just placed down to our south so a real good one tomorrow and even today isn't bat. your exclusive accuweather 7-day not as warm today, a couple of degrees cooler but 79 degrees on the warm side, cool drinks if you're going to be out there working or playing. mainly dry conditions as you saw. then tomorrow beautiful and comfortable with that high of 81. on thursday, we do warm up to 88. the humidity levels may start to creep back up a little bit but it's still not a bad day with a breeze blowing. on friday, that's where the heat and humidity build back in. we get a high of 92. there could be a stray thunderstorm. saturday to start the weekend hot and humid with a thunderstorm, 92 degrees there. and as of right now it looks like sunday is the day where we get a cold front coming in
and that could be an active afternoon with some heavy thunderstorms possible. again, that is sunday and the high temperature on sunday is also about 90. and we're back to 88 on monday and if that front doesn't totally clear the region there could be a stray thunderstorm. i think of all three days, though, where we're looking at active weather sunday is the biggy. >> we'll look out for that. thanks, david. here's that dramatic new video we were talking about showing a ferry coming to the rescue of a capsized boat in lake erie. the 25-foot boat started to take on water near the ohio shore line on sunday afternoon. the captain of the ferry heard the mayday call and seconds after the ferry arrived the boat overturned dumping seven people into the water. everyone had their life jackets on, which is good. the coast guard was able to get everyone safely back to land. >> a new jersey man was sentenced to life in prison for his role in a deadly mall carjacking. henry will serve 65 years in prison before he's even eligible for parole. the 36-year-old was convicted earlier this year in the

>> ♪ >> goodgood morning, everybody, we're looking live on sky6 with our city hall camera and you can see it's relatively wet out there after some thundershowers have pushed through the area. so, give yourself a few extra minutes if you're driving on the wet roads. we've got some out here as well and we have construction, hard to see but you can kind of make out the cones out here right now. they're blocking the ramp from the schuylkill eastbound to the vine street expressway for that overnight construction. so should be cleared within the next 10, 15 minutes but for now as you're traveling out you want to watch for that closure. crews will return again at 11 o'clock and shut the ramp down from the schuylkill eastbound to the vine street expressway so watch for. that let's look on the big picture. we continue to have that problem on 11th street blocked near the vine street, the local vine due to that apartment building fire that's causing a problem but currently you can see the blue route, the schuylkill, i-95 speeds mostly in the 50's. you're doing all right over
there. but in upper merion we have a disabled vehicle on river road at swedeland road so expect some restrictions with somebody stuck out there early this morning. also an early morning accident over here and this is in cumberland county on route 347 northbound right at 47 so watch for that early morning accident. other than that, matt t-roads are just a bit wet. not a bad way to start the day. >> thank you, karen. time for your first look at business. people who work in philadelphia will be paying less in taxes starting next week. less is the key word here. the city announced a wage tax reduction for both residents and nonresidents that takes effect in july 1st but when we say less, it's miniscule. working residents will see their tax burden go down .0097 percent. workers from outside the city will see their rate go down .0087 percent. the wage tax is scheduled to keep dropping for another five years. new jersey lawmakers want to make it illegal for employers to ask about your salary history.

things lined up in the hallways around here. it's all been aimed at bringing you will the news better than ever and i must say it is gorgeous. >> hope you like it at home and another thing it's very efficient. >> yeah. >> with electricity so, you know, kind of little green here, too, right? >> it hits all the spots. >> 4:54. new this morning, a philadelphia police officer is injured in a scuffle overnight. that story is coming up at 5:00 a.m. >> security agents make an unusual catch indeed while
